The Pulitzer Prize isn't just awarded to books. It's awarded in categories of Journalism, Drama, and Music. It's one of the most prestigious awards and if you receive it, you're probably one of the best writers of your chosen field. (For more information on Pulitzer Prize winners this year, click here.
But what other awards are there? Of course, authors who write children books crave the Newbery Award and other adult fiction writers desire the Booker Prize.
